* To earn a coveted spot on this listing, a gig must include at least two of the following:  A decent piano (i.e., can't be festering roadkill) , a nice listening environment (the band has to be louder than the television), and one or more pieces of original music (because, face it, every version of "Summertime" risks being more heinous than the one before it). That said, I play many other gigs that won't be listed but are still well worth checking out, so feel free to email me (billanschell@mindspring.com) to ask where you can hear me on any given night.
